The 2-5 and 5-2 profiles can add a magnetic and alluring quality to ones personality. While this can draw others in, it can also create a heaviness or pressure that is associated with the 5th line projection. Ultimately the 2-5 and 5-2 will need to escape the pressure and get their alone time away form the energy. Lets look at the affects of these two lines.
As we said the 5th line is projective. It is inwardly projecting energy, yet the orientation of the 5th line is looking outward, watching and wanting to interact with others. The result of this inward projection and outward view creates a magnetic vortex and other people are drawn to see what it is about. But since it is a projection the qualities within the projection are not always real or substantial. There is the potential of interpretation by others that is an illusion. Others often make a quick assumption about what the 5th line person is really about. But this quick assessment lacks depth and over time there may come surprise or judgment when the 5th line person does not match the assumption. This interaction can create pressure on the 5th line and they will seek recluse from the projection so they won’t be judged.
The 2nd line is called the hermit. So with the 2nd line profile there is also a need to withdraw. But this need is fueled not by the pressure but by the need for alone time to assimilate. Anything a 2nd line encounters, whether it is knowledge, personal interactions, or physically mastering a new skill, the 2nd line needs down or alone time to integrate the new information or experience. But the 2nd line also produces a projection of energy going outward. Mixed with the inward orientation of the 2nd line, this energy acts like a beacon that others are drawn to call out. So try as they might the 2nd line will get invitations to come out and play.
Because of the interplay of the projections, the magnetic draw of others, the pressure to be alone and the need to assimilate, 2-5 & 5-2’s are social beings, but it can take time to get to know them. You need to peel the onion so to speak, to get deep into their skin.
